Dynamic Duos #6

I have been watching this new Challenge blog from the sidelines called Dynamic Duos. I love how it's just 2 colors. I can definitely handle that!

I love the colors for this week's Challenge. I don't own all of the SU colors yet. But I was able to make do.

I just acquired PTI's Iconic Images set. At first it didn't appeal to me but it's slowly been growing on me.

I stamped then cut out the water pitcher. The flowers are from PTI's Year Of Flowers set. A few of the flowers with stems fit really nicely into the pitcher. I tried a few different looks out but I like this one best.

The gladiolus were hand cut and adhered. Not because I like to fussy cut, but because the copic marker I initially used didn't match too well with the cardstock.

I am in the midst of learning how to stamp images in black, scanning them, and then making my own die cut files in the Silhouette Cameo. I am really, really excited because it seems to be working out very well. I'll be able to save a lot of money on dies to spend more on stamps!!

(My craft room is not completely done yet. I hope to have it presentable for a picture soon.)
Thanks for stopping by!

Stamps: PTI Iconic Images, Year of Flowers
Ink: Amuse Slate, Memento Black, Copic Markers
Paper: PTI Sweet Blush, Rustic Cream
Misc: Pop Dots


  1. Hi Susan, I LOVE your card! I'm really enjoying the fact that Dynamic Duos only has the two colours to cope with...suits me too! Your card is so fresh and sweet Kx

  2. What a great card. I never thought to put flowers in that vase, but it's a really great idea. I am also loving this new challenge. 2 colors is often just the perfect number. (plus, I am encouraged--this is the only challenge where I have received 2 shout outs!)

  3. Beautiful card Susan! Don't you just love that pink and gray together, so soft and sweet, just like your card.

  4. Now aren't you the smartest person around, making your own cut files with your cameo! I bet you will save a bunch of money and those files will make it so much nicer to paper piece images. You did a great job coloring your flowers, they look beautiful in the Iconic Images water pitcher Susan.

  5. This is gorgeous!!! I love the flowers, they are beautiful and they look perfect in the water pitcher. Great card!

  6. Beautiful card! XOu make the colors shine!

  10. This is gorgeous. I love the way you've used these colors. :) Ann Y.

  11. I never would have thought to add the little Year of Flowers images to that pitcher. I'll definitely try that. Great job!

  12. Very pretty, the flower choice to come out of the pitcher...I need to pull that set out! It has not received enough love, that is for sure!
